A Look Back On The History Of Sublime

To hear the words “Sublime Live in Missoula”, seems so surreal to me. For over half of my life, I have been a fan of the “reggae/dub/punk” sound. I remember back to when i was 9 years old and my neighbor let me loose on his cassette collection. One of the first that i snagged was a copy of “40 oz to freedom.” I can still remember bobbing my head to “Scarlet Begonias.”  I have been hooked ever since.

The one thing that really bothers me, as a true fan of Sublime, is the negativity that surrounds the evolution of the band’s new venture. If anything, the decision to change the name to “Sublime with Rome” is just because of a bunch of legal crap. Sublime with Rome is just a continuation of Bradley Nowell’s legacy. For everyone who dislikes the fact the Bud and Eric decided to look for a new front man. I say “Hate all you want! It will not bring Brad back from the dead.” Just appreciate the fact that a band that has been at it for over 20 years, is still out on the road with the hopes of making you happy. They are not the first band that has replaced their lead singer and has continued to be successful.For example: Judas Priest, Journey, AC/DC, Genesis, Van Halen and Alice In Chains.

As we get ready for the Live show at the Wilma. I want you to take a moment to take a look back on the early years of “Sublime.” The following is segments from VH1’s “Behind the music.”
